Have your say

Have your say Image

The Docklands community is invited to have their say on plans for the Western Distributor road plan.

There will be seven community sessions held in Melbourne throughout April and May, offering residents and other members of the community access to the latest information about the project.

The Docklands community consultation session will be held at the Limelight Room at Etihad Stadium from 5pm to 8pm on Tuesday, May 3.

The current proposal for the Western Distributor includes an elevated road above Footscray Rd and three CBD exits, including one that cuts through the 20-hectare E-Gate site that neighbours Docklands to the north.

The proposal also includes two additional lanes in each direction on the Westgate Freeway, between the M80 Ring Road and Williamstown Rd, and a tunnel under Yarraville.

The community will be asked their views on updates to the design for the road, including options for the length and location of the two tunnel entrances and how the Western Distributor connects with Hyde St, CityLink and the western edge of the CBD.

Attendees will also be able to speak with the project team and provide feedback on air quality, noise, urban design and construction impacts.

A Western Distributor community liaison group (CLG) is also currently being formed and will include representatives from the community, councils, industry and Victorian Government departments and agencies.

The CLG will be independently chaired and will provide a forum for sharing views and information about the Western Distributor, which members can share with their networks.
